OK finally managed to get a dodgy picture of what's behind the head unit up front. As you can probably see (or not, it was pretty scary back there), there's no harness and no antenna lead to plug into, hence no steering wheel controls and no radio. Looks like you're probably right, asdetail...that FAKRA cable looks like it's the missing link in my case.

What I would like to know is what are those two unconnected rectangular plugs actually for??

And here is the ORIGINAL gear that was removed from the car but given to me when I bought the car:

As you can see, there's the OEM screen, 6-CD stacker and another box which I think is the TV tuner unit?? But no OEM GPS Navigation unit.

So...FAKRA cable needed for my steering wheel controls and radio??
